Shameless Actor Jeremy Allen White Welcomes First Child

Jeremy Allen White, who's best known for playing Lip Gallagher on the hit Showtime series Shameless, just became a father!

White and his longtime girlfriend, Californication actress Addison Timlin, welcomed their first child into the world on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018. Timlin announced the big news on her Instagram account on Oct. 21, sharing photos of her and White with their newborn, and she revealed that they'd had a daughter. "Ezer Billie White 10.20.2018," Timlin wrote in the post's caption. "Welcome to the world baby girl, it just got so much brighter."

At the time of this writing, White has not yet personally addressed the birth of his daughter.

While further details about the couple's child haven't yet been shared, Timlin mentioned in an earlier Instagram post that Dakota Johnson of The Fifty Shades of Grey fame is their baby's godmother. Sharing a silly photo of herself cradling her baby bump and Johnson holding a bowling ball in front of her stomach on Oct. 4, Timlin said, "Happy birthday to my baby's godmother."

Johnson was recently rumored to be pregnant with boyfriend and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin's baby. However, Johnson later shut down gossip when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Oct. 11. "The only thing I'm pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas," she said.

As noted by Us Weekly, White and Timlin previously starred in the 2008 movie Afterschool together. However, they reportedly didn't start dating until years later.

The two previously announced that they were expecting a baby back in late June. Sharing a photo of them together on Instagram, Timlin wrote, "We made a baby and my heart is bursting at the seams. Today is my birthday but my wish already came true. This is 27 and the best is yet to come."

For his part, White wrote in his own post, "Happy birthday sweetheart. You're gonna be the best momma, I love you."

Congratulations to the happy couple on the birth of their first kid!
